Subject: question about what was the first help on the way slipknot franklin's tower after its hiatus?
anybody know why they changed to half step frank's in late 70s and through 80s. was it 10/8/89 (warlocks) or an 85 show? anybody know when and where the 85 h/s/f was?

Subject: Great Show
I love this show, had an AUD for a while, so is refreshing to hear a nice SBD. The Miss1/2Step>Franklin's is nice, so is the Scarlet>Fire, I think the whole second set is energetic and well played.

As someone mentioned below, the Sailor>Saint is still working the kinks out, so is not a great version.

Good Lovin has Bob losing it a bit at the end, and is a high energy version.

A great '79 show.

Subject: Great show
as one provided with 9/2/79 at an age of 16, its great to realize, Duh, what does the night before sound like. Augusta seems to have risenin our memories, this stadium is nowehere. But, if the band went from Rochester NY to Augusta Maine in 2016 I'll be sending them my cash.

Subject: A nice big Scarlet > Fire, but not one of the greats
This is a good high energy show with just about the amount of sloppiness you'd expect in mid '79, not too much but more than a little. The recording is quite fine; as noted, the fileset is out of order for the second set and encore.

The highlight is obviously the 30+ minute Scarlet Fire, which is that long because Garcia is clearly in a soloing mood. This becomes obvious when he vetoes Phil's introduction of the Fire theme in favor of more transition-jam soloing time. If, like me, you just enjoy listening to Jerry play Fire solos, you'll enjoy this one because he does a whole lot of it, and it's all pretty focused and on point. But only the next to last Fire solo is particularly inventive or unique. That one's great for sure. The rest of what he does here is pretty much what you'd expect if you've listened to many of the big Scarlet Fires from this era - fleet, nimble, and busy.

Certainly a worthy listen for fans of the era and Scarlet Fire hunters!

Subject: Saint
The Saint of Circumstance still needs work. I don't think Bob knew the words at all for this version; Jer's to blame for the mis-timing on the Wharf Rat break section. Still love it though.

Subject: Great show, upload out of order
The Scarlet Begonias listed is actually One More Saturday Night. The order is scrambled a tad. Also, Fire is Scarlet. Drums is Fire. Etc...
